MASON, W.Va. — Cory Hoshor from Buffalo High School turned in a excellent 2-under par score of 33 for his team in a dual match against the Wahama White Falcons.
The play six, count four format was played under sunny skies at the Riverside Golf Course. Cory was actually 3-under after eight holes, but his par putt on the 9th hole missed by inches for his only bogey of the day. Cory is just a junior and is already considered one of the better high school golfers in the state.
However, one excellent score does not off-set four fairly consistent scores which is what Wahama was able to manage on this near perfect day for golf. The White Falcons were almost at full strength for the first time this young season with there final score showing a vast improvement over their first two matches. The final totals were Wahama 173 and Buffalo 181.
Wahama’s Dakota Sisk was able to bounce back from a shaky start to shoot a 41 for the match. Michael Hendricks was consistent throughout the match and also shot a 41. Samuel Gordon, a senior, played his initial match of the year and added a 44.
Junior Michael Mac Knight was somewhat under the weather, but managed to add a 47 for the fourth score that counted for the winners. Freshmen Mason Hicks and Nolan Pierce continued to gain experience and shot a 49 and a 51 respectively.
In addition to Cory’s excellent score, Buffalo’s Blaik Caplinger shot a 44 while Drew Patton added a 48. Nicholas Whittington had the final score that counted for Buffalo shooting a 56. The scores shot by Tyler Sowards and Alex Rayburn were not part of the final total for Buffalo.
Wahama will spent the balance of this week practicing in preparation for a very busy TVC schedule that begins next week.
